Career

  • 2014-date: Research Associate, DAMTP, University of Cambridge
  • 2003-2007: PhD, IRAP, University of Toulouse (France)

Research

I'm interested in various aspects of fluid dynamics (MHD turbulence, dynamos, nonlinear dynamics, instabilities) and in particular its application to astrophysical discs (angular momentum transport, planet formation, gravitational turbulence, MHD winds and jets)
